Glasgow’s Robert Harley returned to the club last week following his spell with the Scotland national team and immediately helped his side to a 25 v 17 victory over Benetton Treviso on Friday.

The 20-year-old flanker spoke after the game on his invaluable experience with the national set up and set his sights on building on Friday’s victory with five Magners League games left of the season.

“I thought it was a great win tonight,” said Harley.

“Since the New Year we have been working really hard and not always got the results we deserved but I thought the team really came together tonight.

“We showed good spirit and great adventure as well we played great attacking rugby and scored three good tries.

“It has been good for me with the Scotland team and it was great to experience the test atmosphere around the camp.

“I got to go across to Paris and down to England as 23rd man and the experience was great and I really tried to soak everything up.

“Knowing you are good enough to play on that stage helps build the confidence which helps when you come back to your club.

“For me personal my aim is to play as well as I can for Glasgow and there are a few things I want to work on.

“From a team perspective it was a great win and something we can really build on.”
